Tracing Jewish history in Munich

After World War II Mordechai W. Bernstein went in search of evidence of Jewish culture and history that was still to be found in many German cities. He was indeed successful and came across a number of different “signs” as he called them.

In the guided tour of the exhibition “In the Labyrinth of the Times” the “signs” Mordechai Bernstein discovered in the immediate post-war era are described more precisely. We then move on from how Bernstein saw things to a number of different places in the Old Town in Munich where participants can discover Jewish life in Munich with their own eyes.
